A new exhibit focused around veterinary science is opening to the public at the Sciencenter this weekend, on Saturday, June 22 at 10 am. During this grand opening, attendees can explore the new exhibit, interact with live animals, and explore the Tidepool Touch Tank.
Modeled after a real veterinarian’s office this new exhibit creates an immersive environment where children can role play as veterinarians. Children can examine real X-rays of animals, weigh stuffed animals on scales, clean stuffed animals in the grooming station, and more.
The veterinary exhibit is designed for young learners and will be located in the Sciencenter’s newly renovated Curiosity Corner. The Curiosity Corner is a vibrant, safe environment, for the Sciencenter’s youngest guests (ages four and under). The Curiosity Corner includes a newly expanded infant area, water table, air station, activity table, and more.
The veterinary exhibit was made possible thanks to grants from Triad Foundation, Tompkins County Tourism Program, and the Howland Foundation as administered by the Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
The new veterinary exhibit opens to the public this weekend, Saturday, June 22, 10 am – 5 pm. This exhibition is included with regular museum admission. For more information call 607-272-0600, or visit the Sceincenter’s website.
